Yes it's a big diff entering a fast knowing I rushed and wasn't quite ready.
I've never experienced severe protein deficiency before either except after that last prolonged fast... I was racking my brains trying to figure out what was wrong until dear doctor informed me... Was just thinking since I was putting my body into an anabolic state but possibly not eating the protein to support that.
It's tricky finding KCl here... And getting it shipped will take a while. The puffiness is slowly lessening. I might just tough it out and just call it a rough fast and try my hardest to hang in there. Although my hubs pretty reluctant to let me go the full 30 days. So staying healthy will enable me to go longer.
